Slavic mandala

Slavic mandala – Since ancient times, the mandala is one of the most sacred symbols in the Hindu religion. The circular shape is seen as a representation of wholeness and harmony (it’s also been used to represent the cosmos), and sacred art in Hinduism often takes a mandala form. We know that this religious imagery came originally from the Aryans, when they came down into India. We also know that the relatives of the Aryans, such as the Celtic and Germanic peoples, also had mandala shapes in their art.

However, I’m curious about the Slavs. It’s pretty much proven that Slavs are closely related to the Indian Aryans, so they probably have this religious imagery as well. I haven’t found it, though, so I’d love to have some examples in this thread.

What do you think?
